Delhi HC Issues Notice in Plea Challenging The UGC Guidelines on Conferment Of Autonomous Status On Colleges

Delhi High Court has issued notice in a plea challenging the validity of the UGC (Conferment of Autonomous Status upon Colleges and Measures for Maintenance of Standards in Autonomous Colleges) Regulations, 2018, (Regulations) for being ultra vires of the University Grants Commission Act, 1956. The Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan issued notice to the University Grants Commission. Filed by Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIPU), the petition claims that the Regulations are ‘unlawful’ and ‘arbitrary’, as in terms of the UGC Act, only UGC is empowered to make rules and regulations with respect to governance of Universities, and not individual colleges and institutes.
